Englund, Hans; Frostenson, Magnus – European Educational Research Journal, 2017
Performative technologies are increasingly relied upon as a means of controlling the work of teachers. As noted in the literature, one possible outcome of this trend is the performer, a teacher identity that presupposes the internalization of, and adaptation to, a performative logic. Based on the findings from an empirical study of a Swedish upper…

Araújo, Susana; Reis, Alexandra; Petersson, Karl Magnus; Faísca, Luís – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2015
Evidence that rapid naming skill is associated with reading ability has become increasingly prevalent in recent years. However, there is considerable variation in the literature concerning the magnitude of this relationship. The objective of the present study was to provide a comprehensive analysis of the evidence on the relationship between rapid…

Ruschkowski, Andreas; Dahlstedt, Magnus; Fejes, Andreas – International Journal of Lifelong Education, 2019
Youth recreation centres have been a key institution in providing young people with meaningful activity after school, going back to the mid-twentieth century in Sweden. These centres have been the focus of research, but very few studies have paid attention to the youth recreation leader, the person working in these centres. In this article, we…

Fejes, Andreas; Olson, Maria; Rahm, Lina; Dahlstedt, Magnus; Sandberg, Fredrik – Scandinavian Journal of Educational Research, 2018
In this article we have analysed the ways a discourse on individualisation is taking shape within adult education in Sweden, how it operates, and what effects it has in terms of shaping student subjectivity. Drawing on a post-structural theorisation we analyse interviews with teachers and students in municipal adult education and folk high schools…

Hinnerich, Bjorn Tyrefors; Höglin, Erik; Johannesson, Magnus – Education Economics, 2015
We rigorously test for discrimination against students with foreign backgrounds in high school grading in Sweden. We analyse a random sample of national tests in the Swedish language graded both non-blindly by the student's own teacher and blindly without any identifying information. The increase in the test score due to non-blind grading is…

Sousa-Ribeiro, Marta; Sverke, Magnus; Coimbra, Joaquim Luís; De Witte, Hans – Journal of Career Development, 2018
While a considerable number of studies have focused on factors driving employees to voluntarily participate in training programs, much less is known on this topic with regard to the unemployed population, in particular the older unemployed, who often are in a vulnerable labor market position due to educational deficits and skills obsolescence.…

Roll, Mikael; Horne, Merle; Lindgren, Magnus – Journal of Cognitive Neuroscience, 2011
Right-edge boundary tones have earlier been found to restrict syntactic processing by closing a clause for further integration of incoming words. The role of left-edge intonation, however, has received little attention to date. We show that Swedish left-edge boundary tones selectively facilitate the on-line processing of main clauses, the…

Bramao, Ines; Faisca, Luis; Forkstam, Christian; Inacio, Filomena; Araujo, Susana; Petersson, Karl Magnus; Reis, Alexandra – Brain and Cognition, 2012
In this study, we used event-related potentials (ERPs) to evaluate the contribution of surface color and color knowledge information in object identification. We constructed two color-object verification tasks--a surface and a knowledge verification task--using high color diagnostic objects; both typical and atypical color versions of the same…

Bygren, Magnus; Szulkin, Ryszard – Social Forces, 2010
We ask whether ethnic residential segregation influences the future educational careers of children of immigrants in Sweden. We use a dataset comprising a cohort of children who finished compulsory school in 1995 (n = 6,560). We follow these children retrospectively to 1990 to measure neighborhood characteristics during late childhood, and…

Nordrum, Lene; Evans, Katherine; Gustafsson, Magnus – Assessment & Evaluation in Higher Education, 2013
This study compares students' experiences of two types of criteria-based assessment: in-text commentary and rubric-articulated feedback, in an assessment design combining the two feedback channels. The main aim is to use students' responses to shed light on how feedback strategies for formative assessment can be optimised. Following action…

Johansson, Roger; Holmqvist, Kenneth; Mossberg, Frans; Lindgren, Magnus – Psychology of Music, 2012
In the present study 24 university students read four different texts in four conditions: (1) while listening to music they preferred to listen to while studying; (2) while listening to music they did not prefer to listen to while studying; (3) while listening to a recording of noise from a cafe; and finally (4) in silence. After each text they…

Roll, Mikael; Lindgren, Magnus; Alter, Kai; Horne, Merle – Brain and Language, 2012
The phonological trace of perceived words starts fading away in short-term memory after a few seconds. Spoken utterances are usually 2-3 s long, possibly to allow the listener to parse the words into coherent prosodic phrases while they still have a clear representation. Results from this brain potential study suggest that even during silent…

Hinnerich, Bjorn Tyrefors; Hoglin, Erik; Johannesson, Magnus – Economics of Education Review, 2011
Girls typically have higher grades than boys in school and recent research suggests that part of this gender difference may be due to discrimination of boys in grading. We rigorously test this in a field experiment where a random sample of the same tests in the Swedish language is subject to blind and non-blind grading. The non-blind test score is…

Menenti, Laura; Petersson, Karl Magnus; Scheeringa, Rene; Hagoort, Peter – Journal of Cognitive Neuroscience, 2009
Both local discourse and world knowledge are known to influence sentence processing. We investigated how these two sources of information conspire in language comprehension. Two types of critical sentences, correct and world knowledge anomalies, were preceded by either a neutral or a local context. The latter made the world knowledge anomalies…

Treese, Anne-Cecile; Johansson, Mikael; Lindgren, Magnus – Brain and Cognition, 2010
The emotional salience of faces has previously been shown to induce memory distortions in recognition memory tasks. This event-related potential (ERP) study used repeated runs of a continuous recognition task with emotional and neutral faces to investigate emotion-induced memory distortions. In the second and third runs, participants made more…
